Warner Bros. announced it will publish The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings in North America for Xbox 360. The game is scheduled to ship in first quarter of next year.

“We have added significant enhancements to the Xbox 360 version of ‘The Witcher 2,’ going far beyond simply editing the code to run on a new platform. Thanks to one of the world's newest game engines, the RED Engine, it will be one of the best-looking games ever released on Xbox 360,” said Adam Kiciński, President, CD Projekt RED.

This agreement is for distribution only. Warner Bros. is not funding development of the title. “Witcher is a AAA franchise that fits well with our strategic distribution of high quality games, making it a great addition to our 2012 line-up in North America," said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior VP of Sales at WB.

The Witcher 2 was released on PC in May of this year.
